The Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management (IWFM; formerly the British Institute of Facilities Management, BIFM) is a United Kingdom-based professional association for the facilities management sector.

History

BIFM was formed in 1993[1] to promote the development of facilities management as a critical, professional and strategic business discipline.[3] In June 2018 the BIFM had around 17,000 individual members.[2]

BIFM was a founding member of the Global Facility Management Association (Global FM),[4] and a full member of the Construction Industry Council.[5]

In May 2018, the BIFM proposed changing its name to the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management and attaining chartered body status.[2][6] The name change was implemented in November 2018.[7]
